Web Proxy Servers allow you to to bypass web filters and be able to access content that you could not otherwise. It is also an easy way to protect your privacy from website data collection, but if you use a Public Web proxy you have no idea who is maintaining it, and war they may be logging. Running your own Web Proxy Server is an easy way to make sure you know your data is safe.
There are many different Proxy Scripts available, but make sure to read the license because some of them can be draconian.
Generally to setup a Web Proxy Server you will need a Web Server with PHP and cURL installed.
In the demonstration we used PHP-Proxy: https://www.php-proxy.com
Information on cURL can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CURL
To install cURL just do a Google search from specific instructions.
